Friends of Corlears Hook Park Hosts Japan Fun Fest

The Japanese Folk Dance Institute of New York (JFDINY) will present an all day festival celebrating Japan in Corlears Hook Park on Sunday, Sept. 12, from 12pm – 4pm.

The event will feature traditional performing arts and cultural activities for the whole family, including performances by JFDINY’s own Minbuza (Japanese Folk Dance), Samurai Sword Soul (Traditional Sword Fighting), and Taiko Masala (Taiko Drumming). Kids will have an opportunity to participate in Japanese arts and crafts such as origami, calligraphy, kendama, and kimono dressing. The event promises a big finale: Bon Odori, a “traditional Japanese Summer event where everyone joins in and dances together.”
